It's runs on any Windows version, is clutter-free, easy to use, extensible, powerful, covers any aspect of your computer and has more configuration options than any other tweaker.

    Xteq X-Setup Pro 6.6 was the long-standing "final free" version that was retained free for loyal users who loved the original freeware program, arguably the very best of all XP (and earlier) tweak machines.

    Although 6.6 was always available, paid-for versions—with apologies for no longer being free—continued through XQDC 9.2.100 (June 2010).

    X-Setup was always meticulously prepared and its myriad available tweaks were cross-referenced and annotated. It was truly a beautiful program, the epitome of freeware produced for the love of creativity. The developers were always personable and quite emotional in their close relationships with end-users.

    As of Sept 2012, I still include both Xteq X-Setup 6.6 as well as XQDC X-Setup Pro 9.2.100 operational in my Windows 7 64-bit OS, not so much because I need them as simply a gesture of "keeping the faith" in the best of the best.

    Functionality is great, as is the comprehensiveness, but there really hneeds to be an optionallowing you to see each tweak only ONCE in classic view. Two many of the tweaks qualify to appear in multiple categgories, and so they are duplicated again and again as you work your way down the tree.

    If you don't like this point me to something better, because i have yet to find anything as detailed and simple to use.

    I don't understand the negative drivel...

    I'm a tweak hound-- both manually and with a ton of different apps...and I:

    still found plenty of tweaks(for Vista mind you)in XSetup that are not found in other apps.

    ¿Would i pay $15? Hemmmm, hawwww.....

    1. I would love to see 'prolificness for Vista', as befits traditional XSetup reputation. However, that's not such a black stain-- given everyone else's still dealing with Vista's relative newness and numerous still-uncorrected defficiencies / quirks. AAANNNDD:

    2. Keeping up with the third-party apps of TODAY-- some of which have now been around too long for XSetup not to be dealing with.

    If XSetup folks wish to monetize, then work up something for the business side: the other Win OS & apps they use-- particularly those which have some crossover personal use.... new hardware technologies....

    XSetup is NOT doing anything wrong to merit negative ratings...it just needs to do more...it's become a victim of its early success generating such high expectations. A good though unrelated analogy is Google-- an absolute cash cow suffering from an undeserved deflated share price.
